For the first time since 1981, Clemson captured a national championship with an incredible 35-31 win over top-ranked Alabama in the College Football Playoff finale Monday night.
"Alabama was the best team in the country up until the last second of this game," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney told ESPN.
There’s a saying that a man's true character is revealed in defeat. It’s also revealed in victory.
I am happy for Coach Swinney. As a diehard Bama fan it hurt my heart watching my beloved Crimson Tide go down in defeat. Clemson richly deserves to be the 2017 National Champions. Dabo made a wish upon a star and his dream came true. I hope he’s going to Disneyland!
